Looking more like a 1970’s mini bike than a modern-day eBike, Volcon has stepped into the urban mobility segment with the introduction of its electric powered bike called the Brat.
Borrowing heavily from Volcon’s Grunt electric motorcycle, the Brat integrates the Texas-based brand’s unique exo-arch frame.
“While our brand was built on the dirt, we have a passion for all things performance and the Brat meets our expectations. We set out to enter the market with not only a high-performance machine, but a bike that had style as well. The e-bike market is saturated with lookalike products, and we believe the Brat stands out from the crowd in both looks and performance,” said Jordan Davis, CEO of Volcon.
“We believe the strong growth in the segment is a unique opportunity to offer a fresh product, grabbing the attention of on-road eBike enthusiasts. The proverbial leap from the Brat to the Grunt isn’t far. If you can ride the Brat, you can ride our Grunt, meaning as your riding style changes and experience progresses, we’ll have the product for you,” he adds.
The Brat features a 750-W motor that draws on a 750-Wh removable battery, which depending upon the power mode can provide up to 70 miles (112 km) of travel on a single charge and a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h), while beefy 20×4 inch hybrid tires make the bike just as at home on off-road pursuits as it is on the tarmac.
Elsewhere, an integrated LED headlight and taillight means the riding doesn’t have to stop when sun goes down, relying on a dynamic display that provides important data like estimated range, trip distance, time, odometer and speed, as well as even more detailed information regarding charging time, ride modes and maps courtesy of bluetooth connectivity.
Volcon expects to begin delivering the Brat to dealers and consumers in November 2022, with an MSRP starting at $2,799.
